Welcome to the 1001 BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU DIE group. It is a specific list of books that can be found at the top of the group description. Every two years the book is revised. This means that there are now 1305 books that we are working our way through. We encourage you to explore the group, check out the various opportunities. You can introduce yourself at the Welcome Mat and the directory will direct you to various links within the group.
Our March 2013 BOTMs are
1. The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
2. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon
3. The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
We are reading The Arabian Nights as a seasonal read for January, February and March. The discussion threads will be pinned to the top. Please join in reading one or all of these books.
And please stop by and introduce yourself at the Welcome Mat.
Thanks for joining the Mystery & Suspense group! Tell us something about you in the Introduce Yourself discussion topic and who are some of your favorite authors in this genre.
Our current book for group discussion is Stealing Faces by Michael Prescott. Our next book for group discussion is The Prey by Allison Brennan. Discussion topics for the book will be posted on February 20.
Lastly, we feature authors each week, proving background info along with their bibliographies. Be sure to check out the author of the week recommendations section and add any you'd like to see included.

Thank you Marilyn, I will have a look at the inspector Gamache series. I think you have a wonderful country in Canada, this series may let me share some of your homeland. Yes I love Australia unfortunately I do not know many mystery writers here. One I may suggest is Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay.
This is an oldie but well written.
Is your daughter back home. I am curious what did she study here that she could not do in Canada? Unless of course, it invoved lots of sunshine and yellow beaches.
Hi, Marilyn, I was initially thinking I hadn't read anything by Robertson Davies, but just as I was about to type that, I realized I have read one book, but I can't recall the title. I don't think I ever added it to my shelf here because it was before I joined and had forgotten about it. It was something about ghost stories. I think I'll have to see if I can figure out what it was!
I actually haven't heard of Richard Rohmer - what types of books does he write? Thanks!
Hi, Marilyn! I'm from the Canada group and just wanted to stop by to welcome you to the group. It's not a terribly active group, but it tends to comes in spurts. There is a Welcome and Introductions thread if you'd like to introduce yourself there. We also have a review thread if you read anything by a Canadian author. Of course, feel free to contribute to the other threads as well! Enjoy! :-)
